NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) Scheme Workshop
For anyone interested in applying for the NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) Scheme, the Academic Health Science Network for the North East and North Cumbria are running a half day workshop. The i4i funding workshop will be facilitated by Ed Cooper from VitalSix Ltd and Dr Ian Newington, Acting Head of Special Projects at the NIHR and who leads the i4i scheme.
i4i supports collaborative research and development projects in medtech SMEs, universities and the NHS that demonstrate proof-of-principle proof-of-principle and have a clear pathway towards adoption and commercialisation. The expected output is an advanced or clinically validated prototype medical device, technology or intervention. The aim is to de-risk projects and make them attractive to follow-on funders and investors.
Date: Tuesday 3rd October 2017
Venue: Durham County Cricket Club, Chester le Street
